This year’s Rainbow Six: Siege Pro League is currently underway and is scheduled to run until October. Every team is competing to get a slot at the Pro League finals, the big tournament to cap off the year. It takes place in Rio de Janeiro and has a $167,000 prize pool. The Pro League finals is planned for November.
NBA 2K League
The NBA 2K League kicked off a few months ago and is a new esports league created by the NBA and Take-Two Interactive, with 17 of the 30 NBA teams having their own 2K League team in the first inaugural season.
What’s unique about this league is the 5-on-5 format using a special build of NBA 2K18; each player covering a specific positional role on the team (PG, SG, etc.). Each role has preset skills and ratings similar to everyone, keeping the game balanced.
It’s a great way to combine NBA and esports fix during the Basketball off-season. Each week, the 2018 season has two days filled with games, then two tournaments in-between the season to change things up. The first season will last until August.
Heroes of the Storm
Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) and has a few unique twists to the genre, making it one of the most accessible games for new players. For one, this is one MOBA without items compared to other games like League of Legends, and experience is shared with the whole team. This is also a game with multiple maps available that are all heavily objective-based.
Heroes of the Storm Global Championship NA Odds
Heroes of the Storm Global Championship EU Odds
The Heroes of the Storm Global Championship (HGC) is back this year and has begun its second half of the season, with regular season games in four regions scheduled until September. The playoffs are scheduled to begin the moment the season ends. We then have the HGC Finals in late October to end the year.
Starcraft 2 is still a popular esports game thanks to a new generation of players pulling off new strategies with their chosen race.
